Federal Surplus Property Donation Program

Since 1949, many Massachusetts executive departments, municipalities and licensed non-profit organizations have benefited from the Federal Surplus Property Donation Program.

When the General Services Administration (GSA) deems federal property as surplus, it is made available to all 50 states on a fair and equitable basis through the Federal Surplus Property Donation Program. The Massachusetts State Agency Surplus Property (SASP) Office acts as the obtaining agent for entities within the state that are approved to participate in the Program.

Massachusetts SASP, a department within the Operational Services Division, is authorized by the federal government to act as the receiving agent for federal surplus property on behalf of eligible Commonwealth of Massachusetts entities.

After notification from GSA that surplus property is available, the SASP assists in the transfer of federal surplus property to state departments, cities and towns, and those not-for-profit organizations involved in education and public health.

Because SASP is a self-sustaining unit, a small service charge is assigned for each property transfer. Depending on the condition of the item and distance involved in its transport, the service fee may range from less than 1% to 25% of the original property value.
